    I just bought a stunning players strat with a flamed maple top pau ferro fretboard which I like better than my rosewood strat! And it's fantastic. The Alnico v pups sound fantastic thru my AC-30 and I'm a very happy camper with my new Fender. What didn't you like about yours?

    It's a tele, ordered from fender direct sweetwater didn't have the color.
    Came with a bent control plate, 2 very noisy pots, and really bad set up or neck.
    I got the idea I was going to upgrade it and fix it up, but I ran out of steam after replacing the plate.. it's just no fun at all to play.

    Don’t like this colour on a Strat but it would look cool on a Tele...

    Great colour, they also do a FSR in shell pink which I'd love but I wouldn't buy a modern mex standard. Specs aren't for me.

    Just changed my vote. It IS cool, but realistically, no. First of all, I’m happy with the one Strat I have and second, there is a logjam of colors I prefer ahead of orange.

    I think Fender would have gladly taken it back and sent me a new one, I didn't get around to seeking support from them, and then I decided I was going to screw around with it.
    Add new pots, new pickups you know have a guitar that I can experiment with.

    Any how I find it odd something so bad got by inspectors, I was super happy with my MIM strat, and rarely hear any complaints about Fenders.
    I'm just lucky I guess...

    Got my buttercream player strat from sweetwater and its awesome. Plays just as well as my us tele.
    I watched a vid on youtube where the host ordered 1 guitar from sweetwater and 1 guitar directly from fender and the QC from fender was way worse.
